Calling All Junior Scientists! Announcing the 2017 Monadnock Region Homeschool Science Fair

2015 Homeschool Science Fair
“How Environment Affects Germination” – a presentation from the 2015 homeschool science fair at Ingalls Memorial Library.

Homeschoolers throughout New Hampshire’s Monadnock Region are invited to participate in the annual science fair presented by the Ingalls Memorial Library in Rindge — and sponsored, for the first time this year, by Chaucer and his team here at Canterbury Tails Books.

The 2017 fair has expanded to include two competition categories: demonstration projects for the 10-and-under crowd, and experiments incorporating the steps of the scientific method for older and/or more advanced students.

This year’s science fair is also open to homeschool students living anywhere in the greater Monadnock Region.

A panel of judges will evaluate the presentations, with Canterbury Tails Books awarding prizes that include $75.00 for first place in the experiments category. Rumor has it that Chaucer himself may also award a special honor to be announced the day of the event!

The Teaching Resources section of our site includes the 2017 science fair poster — with category descriptions, prizes, and rules — and a downloadable registration form. Scroll to the bottom of the Teaching Resources section for both documents.

Siblings are welcome to enter either category as a team if they prefer. Registration is limited to 15 students/student teams per category due to the size of the Rindge Meeting House — so get your paperwork in early! Forms can be dropped off at the Rindge library or mailed back to us here at the address provided.

Questions? Write to us via Chaucer’s Talk to Me! link or post your query on his Facebook page, and we’ll get back to you right away.

Happy experimenting!!!
